"Had a very expensive Avanti updated with a five speed transmission. The work was flawless. My car drives like a dream now, the attention to detail...well is just unheard of anymore! Nice to do business with professionals... they are the best.."
They are very informative, honest, and make the process as painless as possible.
Laure Gauntner of Ravenna Ohio
"We all dread having our transmission go on our vehicles, but if you have to have it repaired go to Jim & Sons Transmission Specialists. They are very informative, honest, and make the process as painless as possible. Everyone that worked there was very friendly."
I would strongly recommend Jim & Sons to anyone in upper Ohio.

Coy Cruse of Rock Hill South Carolina
"February two years ago I found myself in your community due to a lose in our family. While there my transfer case locked up and rendered my Tahoe immobile, four states away from home. Jim & Sons took fantastic care of my needs and had me back on the road within hours. Max Currier was my service advisor. He, Bev and the entire staff were caring of my situation, courteous and very professional. I would strongly recommend Jim & Sons to anyone in upper Ohio. Thanks again, Coy Cruse"
I highly recommend them and would NEVER take my car anywhere else!
Diane Wilson of Stow Ohio
"I can't thank you guys enough. I had taken my car to another very reputable transmission shop and was told I needed a new transmission that would cost me $4,500.00! I took it to Jim and Sons Transmission for another look (which they did for free. I had to pay 260.00 to the other place to check it out and flush out the fluid!) Max called and said not only did I not need a new transmission but that I could get it done for free! He knew of the problem and knew that there was an extended warranty put on it for that specific problem. He had all the paperwork ready for me to take the car to the dealer and it was repaired in an hour free of charge. They were so knowledgeable, friendly and honest. I highly recommend them and would NEVER take my car anywhere else!"
Fantastic! Did the job well for a great price. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable.
Nathan Swift of Cleveland Ohio
"Fantastic! Did the job well for a great price. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I won't take my car anywhere else. Would recommend to anyone!"
I would recommend Jim & Sons to anyone, and I told my mechanic that he should feel confident doing the same.
Mark M. of Hudson Ohio
"The fact that Jim & Sons is a family business was clear throughout my experience: everyone was friendly, professional, straightforward, and willing to work with my schedule. My transmission was rebuilt within the estimated cost and time frame that were given after the assessment, and Max even went above and beyond by spending a significant part of a day fixing a problem with the car stereo code that was a flaw of the car, not the service. I would recommend Jim & Sons to anyone, and I told my mechanic that he should feel confident doing the same. "
In the end I was provided a quality service for an affordable price I feel.
James Johnson of Kent Ohio
"I brought my car to Jim and Sons in Cuyahoga Falls on recommendation from John at Dennings Auto in Kent. I am good friends with him and trust his judgement since usually its me or him that does all the work on my vehicles. I initially was impressed with the facility, definitely a nice clean shop. My 2003 Buick Lesabre had the check engine light on and was throwing transmission codes. I got at least 4 calls in the 2 days the car was there, informing me of exactly what they were doing, and giving me firm estimates of what we're looking at in price. In the end the fix ended up being somewhat simple and cost efficient. They made sure to make me aware of what the cost of the fix was going to be and what my overall cost would be including the labor costs I had already been made aware of. When I got the car back I was definitely satisfied with the repairs. I took it to e-check and it passed with no problems. In the end I was provided a quality service for an affordable price I feel. The staff at this location were also very nice and accommodating, which is appreciated. I would definitely recommend your shop and I will be coming back if I have any transmission issues."
Truly a repair shop that can be TRUSTED
Tom Adamson of Stow Ohio
"Truly a repair shop that can be TRUSTED....I took my mother's 2007 Mercury Mountaineer there after a local dealership quoted a $4,500 repair for the transmission, Jim and Sons completed the work for less than $2,300. I then decided to take my 2008 GMC 2500HD there after another dealership recommended a $2,000 repair for a re-manufactured transfer case, Max assured me he would check it out completely, after keeping me informed throughout the entire process he and his brother found some loose wire connections, fixed those and did a complete service on the transfer case ALL for less than $300.00. Truck drives fine again. They have definitely earned my trust from here on out. I cannot say enough for them and the other staff. Please don't hesitate to take your vehicle there.Thanks again,Tom Adamson"
His shop is incredibly clean and his staff is great. I can not say enough about Jim, except that I would like to steal him and have him here in D.C.
Washington District of Columbia
Mary Manzari of Washington District of Columbia
"Once again, Jim has come to my rescue. I live in Washington, D.C., and whenever I am in Akron I have Jim service the transmission on my 2004 Honda Odyssey (200,000 miles). Whenever I have an issue or question about my transmission, I call Jim. Actually, I call Jim whenever I have a question regarding my van. ... I call him from the Honda service dealer as well ... Even though I am in D.C. he is always there, professional and ALWAYS helps me. I really trust him. In 2003, Jim rebuilt the transmission on my 1998 Grand Voyager. His shop is incredibly clean and his staff is great. I can not say enough about Jim, except that I would like to steal him and have him here in D.C."
Without a doubt the most impressive experience I have had at an auto repair shop ever.
Mike Thompson of Akron Ohio
"I found Jim and Sons on the internet was very impressed with the reviews I read. I called every other shop imaginable and was not impressed by a single one. Called and talked to Max and came away very impressed. Scheduled the tranny service for my KIA. Had a load of questions and concerns and was not only assured it was the right thing to do, but I also came away with a vast amount of knowledge about these newer tranmissions and how they fuction and why they need regular serviceing. At a very reasonable price. I felt very comfortable there. I have read a lot on the correct procedure on how to service a tranny and i can tell you Jim and Sons does it the correct way. It was amazing to me how nasty the fuid coming out of a transmission with less than 50,000 miles was. The car shifts buttery smooth now; the difference is astonishing. Beverly is a real cool cat. Without a doubt the most impressive experience I have had at an auto repair shop ever."
